Re: Rebecca ROUNTREE

In Reply to: Re: Rebecca ROUNTREE by MITCHELL, William G (Bill) of 1359

Bill:

The following are group sheets on Francis Roundtree and his father as I have them in my database.

21 Jun 1998 Family Group Sheet
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Husband: Frances Roundtree/Rowantree #33020
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Born: 1649 in: probably Yorkshire, England 1
Religion: in:
Died: 1723 in: VA? 1
Buried: in:
in:
Resided:
Father: John Roundtree #33028
Mother: Jane Hardy #33029
Frances migrated from Ireland to VA with 6 of his sons. One, Charles, was
ill from smallpox and left behind with the mother. He recouperated and went
to America later. The father and six sons settled in Nansemound Co., VA
(which has been absorbed by Suffolk City Co..)
There appears to be a generation lost here because: (1) Francis is
reported to have been in the Battle of Boyenwater with William III, of
Orange, in 1690 and to have migrated after that, (2) Francis II and Moses
Rountree received land grants in VA in 1681, (3) Charles Roundtree, the one
with small pox that delayed his passage to America, was born in 1680, (4) a
Charles Roundtree was granted 350 acres in VA in 1685. This leads me to
believe that all these 'facts' are not factual. Perhaps we have two Roundtree
families with similar children's names confused. It is reported that the
Charles who had small pox died in Ireland in 1759
His will, abstracted on page 321 in Abstracts of Wills, 1620-1760 (NC)
dated 30 Sep 1730, does not name his wife, but names children: Francis,
William, Jesse, Moses, John, Rebecca, Susanna, Elizabeth and Christian. It
mentions land he owned in Nansemound Co., VA and in NC. Witness on will were
Thomas Tasler, Thomas Hobbs and Isaac Pickinson. Will was not probated.
Another will listed there for a Francis Roundtree, Johnson Co., NC, 13 Jul
1748, lists sons: Kador, Moses and Coleman.
Maj. O. T. Wills writing 6 Mar 1969 published in "Pioneer Kentucky" of
Sterling Advocate, Sterling, KY stated that Francis Rowantree, born about 1620
was born at Stokesley, Yorkshire, England, went to Ireland in 1670, thence to
America in 1694 with 6 sons.

sons, Charles and Thomas; grandsons, William Wallace and Thomas Roundtree;
son-in-law, Elias Stallings; wife, Elizabeth.

Creek, along with Francis Roundtree, Robert Laciter, George Laciter and
Nichoas Stallings, found in Records of the Executive Council 1664-1724, page

The petition states "The petition of Benjamin Blanshard, John Campbell,

Indians your Honours petitioners hath offeredto purchase their right (if any)

Note that Elias Stallings (b. 1704 in England, d, 1785), son of Nicholas
Stallings, Jr., married Elizabeth Roundtree, daughter of Thomas and Elizabeth
Roundtree, niece of this Francis Roundtree.
A will filed 13 Jul 1748 in Johnson Co., NC for a Francis Rountree lists
sons: Kader, Francis, William and Moses and wife Mary, may or may not be for

A Francis Roundtree I listed on Pedigree 2595, Vol. 6, World Family Tree
CDROM has similarities to this Francis Roundtree. Wife is Elizabeth or Mary.
